Medication Management

A frequent - and often crucial - part of the treatment plan for a mental health condition is medication management. This includes:

  • consideration of the use of pharmacotherapy to treat the condition

  • the discussion of past medication trials

  • consideration of co-occurring medical conditions

  • consideration of medication interactions and side effects

  • education on the purpose, risks, benefits, usage, and safekeeping of medications

  • prescribing medications

 

After an initial evaluation, follow-up visits are an important part of the treatment plan. During these appointments, we will evaluate the prescribed treatment regimen and make adjustments as necessary.

Follow-up visits generally last approximately 20-40 minutes, or longer if therapy is incorporated into the treatment plan.
